I mustered all my energy….

So I took the brave step …. I had contemplated leaving ringing them for a couple of weeks…. but to be honest I needed to get the ball rolling….

I read through the letter again…. I needed to have a few things to hand to help the process…. standard stuff … but in my somewhat foggy state evade me at times….. plus I wanted to write down anything I needed to remember…..

So all bits of relevant things gathered together just easy to hand …. deep breath… make sure I ring the right number…. don’t want to inadvertently ring the wrong one and cancel my claim….. I do wonder why they would actually want you to ring them to say you don’t need help anymore….. given they are quite threatening in the letter about you must contact them …. anyhoo I digress ….

I have pen poised an ready for action….. I think to myself maybe a cup of tea would be good at this junction…. my voices particularly Bonny Tyler ish today…… I realise that I’m implementing the avoidance tactics…. so I give myself a little talking to…. I mean how bad can this be …. yes I’ve managed to get myself in a bit of a spin….. but tea has saved the day…. onwards Mcduff ….

Right phone in hand …. off we go…. I’m prepared for Vivaldi’s four seasons…… my call started at 11- 43 …. so we are off….. it’s not Vivaldi’s 4 seasons… it’s green sleeves so much better I feel…. so a couple of press this number… an hey presto a real human…. the chap I spoke to was lovely… went through things slowly… was helpful and respectful… explaining the process… what would happen next … plus the timeframe….

I can’t tell you how much I dreaded this initial call…. but am thankful that it’s over an the next process is the form filling….

I’m going to blog about how this is impacting on my day to day …plus how the impending assessment will affect me…. given this process is going to take valuable energy….. I genuinely want people to understand the impact this has on us….

I can absobloodylutly tell you I’m not in a happy place ….. this process can’t be over soon enough for me ….. thank you for reading this … hopefully others who are going through it don’t feel so alone …. love an light ❤️
